With 198 years of live performance experience between them, ‘Birdmens’ came together in the wake of the 2020 pandemic. Creative recklessness facilitated them, more readily, being socially responsible.

Armed only with cheap microphones, phones and varying internet speeds, ‘Birdmens’ have made an album which thrusts a genuine life-force and verve back into a scene they feel is in need.
Made in bedrooms & kitchens, for less money than would be needed to buy each of the eight members a face mask, ‘Lockdown Loaded’ is one of the best musical releases to come out of the global pandemic to date.
The album was engineered by all members, and Mixed and Produced by Dave Doherty. ‘Lockdown Loaded’ is available now on Limited Edition CD / Vinyl LP from www.birdmens.com
